Any one remember the list? Where I try to put my sarcasm aside and point things that I actually do like about the universe. You know that annoying thing you have to scroll past on my sidebar. Well, things change. Since the list is not set in stone, 6 items have to be replaced. Two of which I already have substitutions for, the other four are open. This is what is changing and why:
1. WILATU #10: XM
XM was brilliant. Sirius is mediocre. They merged. Sirius XM is basically just Sirius. The new WILATU#10 will be: taking my socks off after work.
2. WILATU #77: LOLcats/LOLrus
This was an easy one that even I saw coming. I just can't take it anymore. There is no more originality, and what's worse no more humor. The new WILATU# 77 will be: playing with my Wii. (Yes I purposely phrased it in an obtuse manner.)
3. WILATU #73: Guinness
My goodness! Though it is chock full of vitamins, I can no longer finish a pint and still remain standing. My meds preclude me from imbibing, thus this and all of the following alky-hol containing list items are now verboten.
4. WILATU #34: good vodka
Nastrovya! May we meet again some day my crystal clear friend.
5. WILATU #74: the perfect martini
Dry, dirty, and double. A chilled glass rinsed with a splash of vermouth, some aforementioned good vodka (my favorites being Skyy (U.S.) and Belvedere (Poland),) then bless the thing with enough olive juice to give it a nice muddling.
6. WILATU #58: whiskey (scotch, bourbon, et al)
Brown liquor is indeed the concoction that will turn me into Mr. Hyde. It starts with a gentlemanly sip of refined Scotch and ends with a dead hooker. Metaphorically.
So there you go. The things I like about the universe are slowly dwindling. I take this as a sign that life itself is slightly less worth living. And from someone who has read the warning labels on all his cleaning products for research, any step down is bad. I am going to go listen to some Joy Division and go to bed.
